Allsopp and Murray Parks 5/9/2009

Sam and I joined ASCA today for a field trip to these two urban parks in hopes of spring migrants. Thunderstorms the night before made us hopeful but neither place was particularly birdy. Even so, I did manage to get two FOS birds: Blackburnian Warbler and Spotted Sandpiper (see picture below). Sam may have gotten more. We finished up four hours after starting.
